Frederick, MD, March 15, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- PublishAmerica is proud to present Amenhotep, Son of Hapu: A Tale of Egypt by Chicago, Illinois’s Blake A. Willey.
One of the most realistic, fictional accounts of ancient Egyptian life ever penned, Scribe’s Ascent is the first novel in the Amenhotep, Son of Hapu: A Tale of Egypt series. As Egypt’s foremost éminent grise, Amenhotep narrates in Scribe’s Ascent his rise from a miserable provincial backwater to a position second only to Pharaoh’s in power.
Amenhotep, Son of Hapu: A Tale of Egypt is Blake A. Willey’s first PublishAmerica book. Blake A. Willey received his graduate school training at the University of Chicago and the University of Illinois specializing in ancient Near Eastern history and education. After extensive travels in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, he taught in Chicago inner-city schools and started writing historical fiction when he found he was unable to recommend to his students any fiction set in ancient Egypt on account of the authors’ cultural biases.
